Salt Lake Area Performing Arts & Entertainment

Entertainment in Utah traces its roots to the first settlers, who brought with them performing arts traditions from their native countries. Mormon immigrants had staged plays and pageants in Nauvoo, Illinois, before they were driven from that state into the western wilderness. As they became established in Utah they resumed efforts to provide dramatic entertainment.

Today there are dozens of entertainment venues scattered around the area. Below we list some of the more popular spots:
